I was checking the Canadian Chrysler website and noticed that the AWD 300C had different rims but when I went to build a 300C it showed that all the 300's with AWD have the newer 18 inch rims??? Are the rims on the AWD 300 the same one's on the Magnums? The US site doesn't show these rims so im guessing there only for the Canadian 300's. By the way its rim number 5 in the pic.

The US AWD 300C rims will be the same as the Canadian 300C AWD rims; daimlerchrysler.ca's ahead of the US dodge and chrysler web sites in posting the mid-year updates.

I just got my AWD 200c and it came with aluminum wheels due to salt on the roads in the east coast. I live in California so I requested chrome wheels and the dealers gave it to me. They are meant to come with aluminum wheels but can be switched if you request it. I hope this info helps.

I’m getting my AWD 300C in two weeks and hate the look of the aluminum wheels. So this tread interests me quite a bit, even though I like in salty Connecticut.

First off, I hope your 200C is really a misbadged 300C ;)

Secondly, I’ve experienced chrome wheels surviving MUCH better in salty road conditions than aluminum ones do... Weird?!

Lastly, to make sure I read you correctly - your AWD 300C arrived in CA with the stock wheels (ugly aluminum) and your dealer simply swapped them out with a chrome set?
Which ones where they, specifically; the RWD 18's? Was it a fair trade (dollar wise)? How many days did you wait for them to do the swap? Is the offset correct? Did they mount the AWD's stock tires?

I was going to have the stockers chromed for $500 rather than buy a new set of 18's for $1700. But if the dealer will swap 'em out for chrome, I’m game!

Details, details, detail! :D

yes, please more info about that b/c those aluminum wheels are really, really ugly. I hate them so much.
And lucky people.. I have another 3 months to wait on my car.

I just got off the snow covered roads and up my steep driveway with my 300C AWD and it handles great! My previous RWD sedans handled like crap in the snow and would not make it up my driveway without a running start or two (or three). I'll use this setup for winter driving and switch these nasty looking aluminium rims in the spring, but for now I'm impressed how the AWD (and Conti's) handled this snow storm here in Chicago.

Hey for you guys in the same situation that I was in, yes the dealer was willing to swap the wheels for the 18" chrome ones that come on the 300c RWD for free. They weren't exactly willing but when it came down to me purchasing my second 300c from them they made an exception. I got them put on about a week after I got the car. To be honest, if you are really interested in purchasing them from me, let me know because I'm planning to get some 22"s. They come with the self sealing tires from the protection group thing.
